    Thank you for posting your request on History Hub.

    The Department of Veterans Affairs does not note any facilities in North Carolina in its list of tests and storage within the United States.  See https://www.publichealth.va.gov/exposures/agentorange/locations/tests-storage/usa.asp.

    Among records in our custody, we searched medical records from Fort Bragg and Womack Army Hospital – in A1 Entry 1012, Medical Unit Annual Reports, 1960-1969, among the Records of the Office of the Surgeon General (Army) (Record Group 112), and the subsequent UD Entry 1166, U.S. Army Center for Military History; Histories Division; Medical History Branch; Medical Unit Annual Reports, 1970-1983, among the Records of the Army Staff (Record Group 319) – for possible references to chemical storage in its reports, but we did not locate relevant references.

    As we do for other facilities and corps, we also have some records of Fort Bragg and of XVIII Airborne Corps, but we have not located relevant records to herbicide usage among such series.  These accessions often are among the Records of U.S. Army Operational, Tactical, and Support Organizations (World War II and Thereafter) (Record Group 338).  Potential references could be included in records, but not which can be readily identified.  If they are of interest, such accessions usually can be examined in our research room.

    If you have additional questions for the staff at Archives II, please email us at archives2reference@nara.gov so that we can assist you further.  We also invite you to continue the conversation with community members on History Hub.

    We hope that this information assists you with your research.

    Sincerely,
